How to remove DRM legally from the iTunes collection you own?

Many of you might have found out that the music you legally purchase from iTunes works only on your iPod and iTunes Player. The same m4p files cannot be played on your regular mp3 players!!! Hence, I have a very simple and completely legal solution for you. Read on.....

The absence of a official linux version of iTunes giving all linux users no legal way of obtaining and playing back protected songs. QT Fair Use is a smart application that removes DRM from songs bought by iTunes leaving the tag of the user who bought it in the file. This makes it useless to try and spread the file on the internet afterwards because it would be to easy to find out which user purchased the songs and got the ball rolling in first place.

QT Fair Use can process all songs that are currently in the iTunes library at once making it an ideal tool for users that have a lot of songs that they bought from iTunes. A great feature is that the program works on Windows, Macintosh and most Linux distributions making it a highly flexible solution for most users.

    CORRECTION: QTFairUse is Winblows only. JHymn is cross-platform, but still can't handle the DRM of iTunes 6 or 7. indenr-cnc at ya hoo.

    There's a reason QTFairUse is Windows only: It uses a Windows .dll file to make the conversion process work. I don't know whether the dll is necessary or not, but it seems to have been written in Windows C++, so...

    Take a look at this one: http://www.soundtaxi.info
    I searched for all my protected files and dropped them to the program and the magic started right away! A must for any one who buys DRM’ed audio from Napster, iTunes and more.
    Very excited about the product!

    I use M4P convertting tools to convert my purchased iTunes music to MP3 for my car mp3 player. NoteBurner ( www.noteburner.com ) and TuneBite are the best tools I have used.
